Miles, Lawrence (ed.) -- The Book of the War

A lexicon novel from a spinoff Doctor Who storyline. (It does not directly involve any canonical Who characters, and the terminology is painted over.) The history-spanning, insular, weakly godlike civilization has run into an unnamed Enemy. This is a dictionary of factions, technologies, personages, and adjunct factors from the War's early years (for certain agreed-upon values of "year"). Lexicon entries are threaded together in several ways to form several implied narratives -- of which some are interesting and some are dull. Nonetheless the book is a worthwhile example of a bunch of crazy people writing something impossible.
